Fran's house is fab! Couldn't get over the space! Three large double rooms all en suite and a large bathroom downstairs. Separate TV room where the kids played while we sat by the lovely large stove in the adjoining room. The view is amazing!!!! There was plenty of wood, coal, firelighters for the three nights we were there. Will definitely be back!

Fran was wonderful host and we really enjoyed our stay. It is a lovely clean well built house with a fabulous view. Fran was really helpful, she even drove us to our bus stop in town and made sure we got to the right bus stop location. The settings were very beautiful and relaxing.

Cappa House was fantastic--incredible location with gorgeous views of the sea and the mountains, just a few minutes from town, with easy access to local sightseeing outdoor activities. Fran was a fabulous host, kindly accommodating us with a last-minute booking. We have recommended her place to our friends and look forward to visiting again in the future!

Really lovely house with the most amazing view! The kitchen is really well equipped (great if you are into proper self catering!) and spotting Fran's little notes everywhere giving you guidance on how things work were a nice little personal touch! We will definitely return again and book this house again - it is perfect for exploring the wilds of Beara. Hopefully next time though the weather will be kinder to us! Definitely a great place to stay!

I'm a qualified laboratory technician but I left lab work in 2007 to work in the tourism industry. I currently own and run a holiday home on the beautiful Beara Peninsula in West Cork in Ireland. I love hosting as I enjoy meeting new people and welcoming back previous customers. I have now opened a B&B business on Beara very close to Cappa House.
